|Excerpt from this day’s program:
…Suddenly the southern front falls silent and the northern one heats up. Suddenly the Islamist Muslim Brothers in HAMAS stop firing their murder rockets — but don’t tell Navi Pillay — and the Islamist Jabhat al-Nusra Front, son of al-Qaida, is kidnapping people like Barbary Pirates on the Golan Heights, right on our fence with Syria, which has lost control of the border.
Last week they kidnapped scores of Filipinos and Fiji Islanders, UN peace-keepers, though so far the rationale has not been made public by these mujahedeen, holy warriors of Islam, in reality unholy agents of Satan. And since so far they have not publicized the purpose of this kidnapping, from which overnight some the Filipinos were rescued, some escaped, one can only surmise that they object to the presence of non-Believers bearing weapons and endowed with authority on Muslim land.
Let’s remember that according to the biographies of Osama bin Ladin, what lit his fuse was the fact that in 1990 when Saddam Hussein overran, looted and raped Kuwait, the panicked Saudis, his people, asked the US and others infidels to come to rescue them and prevent Saddam from continuing beyond Kuwait into Saudia. Bin Ladin was humiliated by this and judged the Saudi regime bad Muslims. Muslims are very much into humiliation…
|Excerpt from this day’s program:
…And so it was last evening. The prime minister made an intelligent argument for his decision to agree ceasefire. Aside from letting Gaza’s fishermen go six miles out inside of three, he denied every demand of the enemy. They got nothing except a promise to talk some more about their demands a month from now. All their bombast about “no cease-fire until all their demands for lifting the blockade and building seaport and restoring the wrecked airport and salaries for their civil servants came” to naught.
Bibi was proud to point out that not one of these demands was met, and indeed as other analysts have pointed out, in the end HAMAS was begging for a ceasefire which came about when Israel ratcheted up its destruction and started bringing down whole apartment buildings.
He ticked off the elimination of some 1,000 terrorists, the bombing of some 5,000 structures associated in one way or another with HAMAS, Islamic Jihad and other cult groups. He brought up the smashing of the attack tunnels and rocket launchers, weapons factories and arsenals.
This type of warfare in which a military presents such achievements is a cop-out, for it does not address the reason for the homicidal violence these sons of Ishmael never tire of bleeding us with.
To listen to Bibi last night was to listen to an athlete proud of his victory over his opponent in the recent battle. But that is not to be confused with victory in the war…
|Excerpt from this day’s program:
Over a hundred rockets yesterday. In late afternoon seven people were wounded by a missile strike, one of them died. And the rockets kept falling right up to 7 p.m. when the latest cease-fire was announced. The wording of what HAMAS agreed to matters little; sounds all rather vague. Israel was reported to have ceased fire too, and it is impossible for yours truly to know what the Three Bs — Bibi, Bogie and Benny – know. Only they have all the information – how many Iron Dome rockets are left, things like that. Ceasefires are also commonly used to re-group and reinforce.
All I can think of hoping for is that they all agree that in the final analysis, Gaza has to be defanged and that likely means a major invasion costing much in money, which I think we have, but also hundreds more dead. For the wicked stupidity of the Oslo Abomination we paid with the lives of over 2,000 ordinary Jews slain by our savage neighbors, and I fear we must sacrifice some more…
|Excerpt from this day’s program:
…The Teaching from Mt. Sinai, specifically the book called Beraishees/Genesis, tells us that after Ishmael was expelled from his father’s community of followers, more than a thousand for sure, he went to live in the desert and became an archer.
And what is an archer? A killer who uses his bow and arrow to kill animals for food and kill other men.
Rashi calls him a listim, a highway man, he who waylays people when they are at their most defenseless and robs them and kills them if he chooses, having no civilized conscience to restrain him.
And so Friday a missiles fired out of Gaza of the Philistines crashed landed on a car which blew apart and sprayed shrapnel on this adorable little boy and killed him.
A week and change ago Chief of Staff Benny Gantz said it was safe to return home and even got poetic about these farmers returning to their seasonal tasks, and boy was he wrong about that; so the people of the communities lining the Gaza zone of barbarism are fleeing again. Again these communities are being abandoned, and today the military analysts are finally focusing on the oddball problem: in this violence, the threat to Israel is less the big rockets — the Iron Dome handles them — but the short-range projectiles, indeed the mortars, against which there is no comparable defense. I think the Red Color warning for those communities being hit with mortars is like 15 seconds and even less.
This is death not by a knockout but a thousand cuts. It is the little stuff which is now killing us…
|Excerpt from this day’s program:
…Today in JPost their estimable Herb Keinon reckoned that we are entering the second round of this fighting and the international leeway and legitimacy that Israel enjoyed at the beginning, following the triple murder of our boys, has been depleted.
Perhaps. But I think he wrote this before news of the decapitation of James Foley. For sure, Israel was thoroughly smeared with the blood of innocents before the cease-fire but I think Israel could profit from yesterday’s horror in Iraq if only it were capable of doing what it has never done: and that is to dismiss Palestinian Nationalism for the hoax that it is and turn the spotlight on HAMAS as a soul-sister organization of ISIL. Israel needs its ambassadors abroad to link in the mind HAMAS with ISIL for HAMAS became famous through suicide bombing every bit as grisly and gruesome as this latest decapitation by a Muslim of a Western infidel. For I don’t see much aesthetic or moral daylight between cutting off Foley’s head, and exploding oneself on a crowded rush-hour bus in Jerusalem which explosion blows the heads off several Jews at the same time.
I remember that image well, never actually shown in photo but described in words by a policeman who boarded such a blasted bus at the Patt Junction in Jerusalem in which he said the people who had been sitting in the front row, like two abreast on either side of the center aisle, were still sitting there as if nothing had happened only they had no heads. They had been blown off their shoulders and were in the back of the bus. Israel needs to make clear that our self-defense against HAMAS is the same as fighting al-Qaida and ISIL…
|Excerpt from this day’s program:
…I guess it is with mixed feelings this evening that one greets the return of the rocket fire, ruining the lives of thousands of Jews, and that is because how can one be grateful for such terror, but on the other hand, I have been fearful that Israel would settle for, as Bibi said at the outset, “Quiet for quiet.” But I reject that as a goal of policy and hope that maybe this latest betrayal by the Arabs and their return to mass attempted murder and destruction will lead to Israel finally, after 14 years — and really after 47 years — do the right thing with Gaza. Israel must decommission Gaza and return the real estate to its historic place as within the Land of Israel.
The Arabs in Gaza must be helped to live elsewhere in the Arab world, and with 21 sovereign Arab states spread over territory larger than the United States of American by 40%, there is room for them. And with so many Arab states awash in billions of petrodollars, funding such a population transfer should be no problem.
One of the things I don’t like about Bibi’s goal of “quiet for quiet” is that it is typically short-range. None of the children and grandchildren of the original secular Zionists who dreamed of a state in the future seems capable of imagining a better future, which should include decommissioning Gaza as this cesspool of Jew-hate that it represents…
|Excerpt from this day’s program:
…Bibi has to call a press conference for early evening when it can be broadcast live on CNN and the BBC World Service, FOX, Al-Jazeera and everywhere around the world during which he states that the Muslims in the Gaza Strip have no right to fire rockets into Jewish communities, Jewish farm houses and Jewish land; into Jewish towns like Sderot, into the homes, the modest apartments of good people; into children’s playgrounds; into children’s bedrooms. They have no right to do this and because they do not, we have the right to do anything necessary to make them stop. And we will not stop until we see the white flag surrender and we are able to destroy every missile in the Strip and the machines used to make them. Israel declares to the entire planet that these barbaric people have no right to turn our tiny country into a shooting gallery. The age of the Coliseum in Rome in which Jews were butchered by gladiators and wild animals for the amusement of the pagans that the Roman were is no more. Israel will not tolerate anymore this behavior that Israel tragically did not deal with properly for 14 years…
|Excerpt from this day’s program:
…Well, the top story today in Israel was the Wall Street Journal piece this morning was about the Muslim Brotherhood secret agent in the Oval Office halting a shipment of weapons Israel needs to defend itself from his fellow Muslim Brothers in HAMAS. Makes sense to me.
Actually, I heard a rumor of this about a week ago only as with most rumors, one difference was the word that it was Iron Dome missiles in US arsenals here in Israel that U.S. managers were refusing, on orders, to supply. Over the past month I’ve worried about that; I’ve wondered how many Iron Dome missiles we began with and how many more remain. We have used a lot of them.
But the word this morning was that the missiles in question were not Iron Dome but Hellfire air-to-surface missiles Israel fires from helicopters at Obama’s fellow Muslim Brothers down below in the Gaza rectangle. In a word, the story was of His Majesty the Great and Fundamental Transformer of the United States Imam Barack Obama upset that Israel was communicating directly with U.S. defense officials without first asking the Imam for permission, and the upshot of the story is that henceforth His Majesty, Emperor Barack Hussein will want to approve or reject every one…
|Excerpt from this day’s program:
In this very week when the Council chose this proven enemy of the Jewish people to judge us as gross criminal violators of human rights, Yediot’s veteran Arab affairs reporter Smadar Peri, a reliable source, reported on the deaths of 160 children in Gaza, boys, not at the hands of the IDF but HAMAS who had been recruited into building the tunnels and perished in work accidents, cave-ins and the like.
Described was how they were recruited and/or coerced by masked HAMAS boys into doing this work, with dozens of them being killed on suspicions of spying for Israel. Before a workday began, they would be strip-searched for hidden microphones given them by the Mossad, it was believed. Dozens were murdered just on suspicion.
Where is the UN Human Rights Council on this report? Smadar Peri reported that over the last 3 years, 160 had died in work accidents building the tunnels, 60 had been murdered on suspicion of spying for Israel and presumably other acts of resistance to their overseers…
|Excerpt from this day’s program:
…On Friday the International New York Times ran yet another official, anonymous editorial on the war against Israel which twice referred to “both sides,” one of the signature hallmarks of contemporary antiJew modernism, the moral equivalence gambit, which is at bottom a form of antisemitism because it insults Jews terribly by equating us with their satanic terrorists and the illiterate Muslims who cheer them on and vote for them.
This editorial referred to Israel and Israelis 11 times; to Palestinians 7 times; to Hamas 4 times.
There was no appearance of the words “Islam” and “Muslim”; no mention of Muslims hiding behind children and in UN buildings. The editorial concluded with the hope that the “indirect talks in Cairo between Israelis and Palestinians lay the ground for something bigger and more durable than one cease-fire.”
What a dishonest piece of journalism. No mention that HAMAS is a self-proclaimed branch of the Muslim Brotherhood, the source of all the so-called Islamist, extremist, terrorist organizations like Al-Qaida, Hezballah, now the head-choppers of ISIL in Iraq.
And it is Israel’s fault that the New York Times and other anti-Jew operations can get away with this shielding its readers from the truth; the truth that Islamic Jihad and HAMAS, the two principle two cults in Cairo the last few days are not “Palestinian” organizations. They are Muslim organizations…
|…Think of the sequence in the novel and movie The Godfather in which hotheaded son Santino gets a hysterical call from his sister who is constantly being slapped around by her husband Carlo. Sunny explodes, jumps in his car to go to her rescue and on the way is ambushed and killed by a rival gang. It was all a set-up. Carlo was paid by the rival gang to slap his wife around again in the knowledge Sunny would react as he did.
And so HAMAS, I reckon, ordered up that triple homicide of the boys in June in the knowledge Israel would react severely. It did, re-arresting the killers released for Gilad Shalit, which then licensed HAMAS to begin it rain of rockets.
And the result for HAMAS: world-wide condemnation of the Jews as child-killers, not HAMAS. In a way the entire episode has been a successful HAMAS campaign to smear Jews with the crime of being conscienceless, cold-blooded killers of children.
HAMAS has been calling for Arabs in Judea and Samaria for months to murder Jews, and today the world is outraged at us for our disproportionate use of force, basically, our willful, deliberate, cruel and sadistic murder of children.
The blood libel lives…
|Program Link: Palestinian Islamic Jihad Video Showcases Subterranean Rocket-Launching Capabilities|
…Yeah, HAMAS is this evil organization of lunatic antiJew gangsters who have become millionaires as they skimmed off the foreign aid money that reaches the Strip, which they use not to improve the living conditions of the inhabitants of the UNRWA slums but to build this mind-boggling underground world of tunnels and hidden rockets. You saw that in the video right? How they dig pits in orchards with sliding covers. They install rocket launchers in the pit which they then close and cover over with dirt until the moment they want to fire them to terrorize Jews in Sderot and elsewhere.
Gaza is notorious for its terrible water supply and sewage disposal system which could have been repaired with all the money HAMAS — the government — spent on these tunnels, the miles of them lined with concrete and iron.
You may be remember in years past Israel’s refusal to allow such building materials into the Strip for fear they would be used against us.
But the Enlightened said all the Ancient Ones wanted was to build new schools and medical clinics.
Yeah. Right. How much they care for their children.
Israel’s public diplomacy never exposes the utter corruption of these HAMAS big wigs, their hypocrisy and sick, medieval, even magical Jew-hatred…
|…I find this so bizarre. What is so difficult to understand? These Nazi-like Muslims this very week and not for the first time were calling for the killing of all Jews, and here is the UN blaming Israel for the deaths in Gaza when that charge is so, on its face, absurd. What does it benefit us to spend time and the price of ammunition on killing children who do not threaten us? We target the adult males in this community who do fire at us; them we are determined to shoot dead.
We want these missile attacks to stop; how does deliberately killing children bring us closer to that goal? What do we benefit from such behavior which we also know from past experience brings on a cascade of abuse and calumny and charges of war crimes?
At bottom, we are charged with some kind of perverse pleasure in killing Arab children and other innocents, since it offers no material gain, no political advantage.
The accusation also implies some kind of colossal stupidity on our part. If we deliberately kill children and others in Gaza who do not threaten us, we are morons for we know we will be accused of war crimes. Are we such slaves of our need to kill Arab children? The accusation also flies in the face of other evidence portraying Israel as the most careful army in the world…
|…So in addition to Obama’s display of Muslim solidarity in his demand that Israel stop beating up on his brethren, one of his brethren was in excellent, classical Muslim Arab form via the performance in a message from Muhammad Dif, HAMAS’s head terrorist, who has survived over the years four failed Israel attempts to give him a free ride to Muslim paradise. He was heard in a taped message saying “Our fighters want to die like your soldiers want to live.”
I read that and thought, “Excellent: a perfect self-portrait, a mirror image of us Jews. The Arabs, the sons of Ishmael, are thieves like their forefather and in this case, as in so many others, they define themselves via their feelings toward us. If we love life, they love death.
It is like the appropriateness of their symbol of the half-moon crescent. For what is a half-moon but a world partially in the sunlight, partially shrouded in total darkness? The half-moon is like a veiled Muslim woman, out in public but hiding, as Muslims typically present a public image which masks the true, reverse image underneath. This is the principle of taqqiya — dissembling — which they practice, as Arabs, not only with enemy Jews and other infidels but among themselves. They go through life constantly “lying,” which is to say saying one thing in public and doing another when the moment is over.
The moon is also a world which produces no life, no light, no energy. All it does is reflect the light and energy created elsewhere…
|…While Israel has been relentless in smashing Gaza as it smashed Dahiya, the Shiite neighborhood in Beirut in 2006 that was home to Hezballah, HAMAS is having much success in the matter of igniting Jew-hatred around the globe as the media feature one gruesome image after another of an Arab child “murdered” by the Jews.
It is really quite a psycho-drama that is being played out. Remember how this latest volcanic eruption of Muslim barbarism began? With the kidnapping and murder of our three boys, and here HAMAS orchestrates scenes intended to smear us Jews with being child-killers. It is almost as if this latest round is meant as a distraction from the terrible guilt HAMAS incurred by that triple homicide.
And what they are doing in Gaza by shooting off these projectiles is forcing Israel to retaliate with its projectiles as HAMAS threatens with death anyone who tries to escape the targeted areas; anyone who listens to Israel’s warning and advice to save themselves. HAMAS forces Israel to attack and sees to it that the victims are women and children, the legendary “innocent” civilians in order to spread the calumny that Israel deliberately murders innocent civilians presumably for the sheer, sadistic pleasure of it when otherwise the activity has no military purpose. Jews just like to shed Arab blood.
In effect, they are stage-managing events to paint us Jews in the same colors as that crazed Arab in that police station in Ramallah ecstatic with having dipped both his hands in the blood of a Jew he had just beaten beyond recognition to death. It is Israel that is blood-thirsty and murders Balestinians at random… when of course Arab terrorism has always been the murder of innocent Jewish civilians at random going about their daily lives in bus stations and fast food restaurants. This whole operation is fueled in part by this Arab need to portray the Jews as the guilty party, guilty of their sins. The Jew as scapegoat…
|…So the good news was the lifting of the boycott of Ben Gurion Airport not only by American carriers but others, all of whom, except a few, I think, have resumed service.
The bad news is that I see in the behavior of Khalid Mashaal, the Hamas leader who lives in Doha, Qatar, a self-confidence which suggests he is confident that his men, all of whom are ready to die for Allah, can hold out for weeks.
Indeed, the other day, JPost cited Steve Emerson citing US intelligence sources who believe that there are twice as many tunnels as Israel thinks. At the beginning of the week, “Bogie” Yaalon (if memory serves) said Israel needs another two or three days, but two or three weeks might be more accurate and even that a serious underestimation.
At the beginning of this week, last Sunday’s webcast, I brought up the 1976 siege of the UNRWA slum in Lebanon when the PLO gangs held out for months (!) as the Christians pounded them with artillery shells, 40,000 of them, which leveled the entire community. And the PLO big shots could survive because they had built a vast underground network of tunnels with, as Emerson said of the current situation, electricity and refrigeration and stockpiles of food; plumbing; water supply. It sounds like a repeat of that siege with the purpose of wearing Israel down financially and spiritually and everyday seeing it smeared in the media with the excrement of guilt for the deliberate, blood-thirsty pleasure of murdering children and other innocent civilians…
|…Ergo, the decision by the FAA today to deny Israel service because of the missile threat could be in the long run a blessing in disguise. If I were Bibi, I would now inform world opinion that we cannot as a state, as a community, sustain even the possibility of future missiles hitting Ben-Gurion which logically leads us to a policy of seeking out every missile in Gaza, every machine connected to making missiles and destroying them. And if we have to kill everybody in Gaza to do that, we will.
These soul-mates of the Muslim sky-devils on 9-11, 2001, are our mortal enemies and the enemies of civilization and we are going to destroy them in Gaza. We have no desire to rule over them. We would prefer they become so engrossed in fixing up Gaza they will forget about trying to murder Jews in Israel. But we will not cease-fire until we have destroyed all of these projectiles and the number women and children these Muslims want to sacrifice to their pagan and barbaric concept of G-d, the G-d of Avraham, the kindness man of his generation, is their business.
How these Muslims with their plagiarized version of Judaism have so misunderstood Judaism. Abraham was the greatest religious revolutionary in history and he was the kindest of men adored by his followers, which kindness is not to be confused with wimpiness. When his nephew Lot was captured like Gilad Shalit and taken to Damascus, Abraham organized 318 of his followers and led them on a hostage-rescue mission to Damascus, almost 4,000 years ago. Think of that. There is a historical record of savages in these parts kidnapping people that goes back almost 4,000 years, which is why I am not optimistic that sons of Ishmael here will do tshuva anytime soon. And because of that Israel has no choice but to rule with an iron fist, starting with its destruction of all these missiles these criminals should not have in their possession. These murderers. Every one of their projectiles is meant to murder a Jew…
|…Today the news was other shelling and bombing of the Shujea neighborhood in Gaza City and the claim now by the Arabs the IDF has killed 400 of them and today’s IDF operations were war crimes against “innocent civilians.”
I said it last time. I am waiting for Bibi and other of our leaders to confront this concept of “innocent civilians.” I’m sorry, but in elections ruled fair by none other than the famous antisemite Jimmy Carter, HAMAS won three-quarters of the seats in their assembly. These people chose HAMAS to lead and represent them, so if thanks to the activities of HAMAS the IDF is bombing the bejeezus out of the voters in Gaza, too bad.
This is like the second corruption of thought having to do with elections and Arabs and how they don’t mix. Just today I saw a former Israel ambassador arguing that in 2007 HAMAS forcibly overthrew the PA in like a coup d’etat; this is the conventional wisdom among the peace processor camp, and it is another of their lying perversions of reality. In 2006, because the PA was known as the same old bunch of corrupt thugs and bullies the PLO gangsters had ever been, the people voted overwhelmingly for HAMAS. And when the PA, Abbas’s boys, literally refused to vacate their offices in Gaza, Hamas rightly had to throw them out bodily. It is a complete lie that HAMAS forcibly took Gaza away from the PA illegally.
And now the people in Gaza for having voted for HAMAS are paying the price…
|…And make no mistake: the purpose of such massacres is killing Jews and making them bleed. I think the iconic photograph taken in that Ramallah police station in 2000 which ignited the Al-Aqsa Intifada, says it all, when two reservists took a wrong turn and were beaten to death beaten so badly their faces were no longer faces and one of the murderers dipped his two hands in their blood and went to a window to hold them up and celebrate with the mob outside the victory of doing this to a Jew and dipping one’s hands in his warm blood. And of course there was the expression on his face of gleeful, satanic triumph.
And then there was that police recording from the cellphone from the three boys who after the demon Arabs shot them dead could be heard rejoicing at having killed three Jews.
And then of course that became a popular hand signal in Gaza: the three fingered salute.
They say Hamas won’t agree to any truce without some accomplishment and one such accomplishment might have been this morning the slaughter of all those children at that border kibbutz.
That is who is aggressing against us: homicidal Hamites authentically and accurately describable as blood-thirsty savages for whom the purpose of their violence is not acquiring, via delayed gratification, some long-range goal but the instant gratification of killing Jews. For them a successful operation allowing them to agree to a cease-fire would be some form of human sacrifice, with the Jews the victims. They want to see warm Jewish blood and dip their hands in it…
Blair: Israel won’t be able to destroy Hamas
…A ten year-boy today got blasted. He made the mistake of standing next to a wall thinking perhaps that at least that side of him would be protected, but a physicist explained on Galei Tsahal this afternoon the physics and mechanics of a blast. The boy should have assumed the recommended position everywhere which is face down, hands over the back of the head. So the blast of the missile strike 20 meters away blasted him standing up; shrapnel penetrating to a lung. He is in intensive care.
A 74 year-old women tourist evidently was so frightened by the air siren in Jerusalem she had a heart attack and died.
And then on Friday a missile in a gas station hit next to a tanker-trailer which caught fire. One man was seriously burnt.
You all know that unlike years gone by, the whole country is now having air raid sirens going off, people in dozens of communities running for shelters. People falling and injuring themselves, breaking bones.
The airport is not functioning normally, and that’s good (sic) because that’s a red line for the government and the country, a people that loves its vacations abroad. Don’t mess with our air travel.
It’s good, I think, for it will prod the government to set as its goal the total destruction of the capability of the Ishmaelites in the Gaza rectangle to manufacture and stockpile such rockets and occasionally fire them off at us.
Israel must end this situation 13 years long now once and for all and the current daily barrage of rocket fire licenses us to do that. To do whatever it takes until every rocket in Gaza has been destroyed, every machine used to manufacture them too. There is no substitute for total victory…
|…This guy should not have been housed in an Israeli prison for all those years. He should not have been fed all those years. He should have been executed for his participation in massacres of people. The Arabs overflow with the spirit of Ham, son of Noah, who unlike his two brothers, all of them born before the great Flood, was most like the common man who was a conscienceless, violent brute. They are Hamites and not Semites and simply do not lack for legions of sub-civilized killers who it is so wrong to keep alive because Israelis, the seed of post-Jewish Hellenistic types, want to show they are not at all devotees of the merciless, wrathful Old Testament deity. They are not old-fashioned reactionaries but Enlightened people for whom capital punishment is immoral.
And I say I cannot logically judge myself smarter than G-d who after the Great Flood mandated capital punishment, meaning, the death sentence for murderers carried out by society via judges and courts of law. I unlike the Enlightened dare not see myself on a higher ethical plane than HaShem and so I think the opposite. It is not immoral to have a death penalty; it is immoral not to have one…
|…It was gratifying today to hear of the IDF strikes, according to Kol Yisrael late today, every five minutes all over the Strip since about 10 o’clock this morning. It sounds as if the strategy is the same as that which brought the Second Lebanon War to a close: bomb them and bomb them and bomb them until they say uncle.
Hundreds of thousands of Jews today were ordered by civil defense authorities to remain within 15 seconds of entering a bomb shelter. Hundreds of thousands of Jews are those tethered like dogs on a chain. And one major reason is the competition for power among the terror cult groups. Hamas is trying to reassert its mastery and insists that it must be paid by Israel if it is to return to squashing the other groups’ rocket attempts. Israel must release all the 50-some Hamas guys freed for Gilad Shalit who were re-arrested, and Israel must lift its blockade of the Strip and Israel must stop killing specific Hamas guys.
Of course Israel will not do that. Instead, all day long, it’s been bombing houses and killing specific Hamas leaders, blowing up their houses. Over Judea from time to time we hear the warplanes overhead on their circuit before a bombing run…
|…Roger Cohen here is attacking the Bible, the Torah, the foundational document of the Jewish nation which is all about G-d giving this Land to the people Roger was born into. It is as if Roger Cohen has taken a dagger and plunged into the Torah.
And what compounds the antisemitism here is his obliviousness to the truth that the Arab claim to this very same real estate is no less a religious claim that Allah sees Believers as the Chosen People who by divine right are the legitimate owners of this land.
He bashes the Jewish people faithful to thousands of years of Jewish life rooted in the Torah but never attacks the Arabs for basically the same belief that this is their land as of divine right…
|…What Israel needs to do above all is break through the psychological barrier of European and African threats and once and for all, whenever Catherine Ashton or John Kerry pipes up about the need for Israeli restraint, is to, so to speak, “flip them the bird” and declare we will pound these people back into the Stone Age if that is what it takes to put an end to their constant bouts of rocket and mortars barrages that torture and torment a million Jews, lots of them terrified children in the south.
Israel has to demand total surrender in Gaza, and if Israel has to flatten everything in the Strip, sobeit. Enough of their antisemitic need to torture and torment the Children of Israel – in both senses of the term…
|…There is something profoundly immoral, to my mind, by not putting to death, murderers, especially when the murderers are proud of their killing.
By all means in civil proceedings afford the defendant who claims he is innocent all possible avenues and techniques for proving his innocence.
But not every homicide leads to the arrest of someone claiming, “I didn’t do it. Get me Perry Mason.” Some murderers actually crow of their dastardly crime and these should immediately be put to death.
This business of Israel warehousing thousands of these men who deserve death cannot be justified. To do so is to commit an offense against their Jewish victims. So yesterday Baruch Mizrachi’s widow — ironically the counter-terror specialist in the police force murder outside of Hevron Erev Pesach — was demanding death for his killer and rightly so.
It is, I fear, one facet, of some defects in the Israeli character. One would think that along with the building of the New Jew who fights back, as Bibi likes to say, who has his own country and own army and can fight back, the New Jew would not hesitate to execute as soon as possible an Arab murder of a fellow Jew.
Israel needs to revamp its thinking about acts of terror and Arab brutality. Israel needs to declare to the world that in the land of Israel, the ultimate crime is violence by a goy against a Jew.
How common that has been in the exile; how uncommon it must become here…
|Program Link: Hamas official to Abbas: Don’t make us take over Gaza|
…You may have seen the headshots of the two principle suspects behind the kidnapping two weeks ago. Makor Rishon on Friday said within like a day the GSS was pretty sure these were the two masterminds and for two weeks this is whom they are looking for.
And judging by their photographs, these veterans of homicidal violence against Jews and Israeli prisons, this is the enemy. One is in his late 20s, on in his early 30s, and they are, judging by their appearance, nothing but street punks who if they did not have us Jews to brutalize, they would be doing it to their own.
This is the enemy. Not soldiers, not freedom-fighters, but violent punks, gangsters. Think of Saddam Hussein, Muammar Qaddafi, Assad father and son. This is who the Arabs have for leaders. Gangsters who haven’t got an eye-dropper’s worth of concern for the people they rule over. In their culture, to be a leader is to steal, embezzle the wealth of the country and keep the people down…
|…That is the bottom line here. The Islamic, Qur’anically mandate hatred of Jews. Israel has to re-brand the conflict as not about statehood for any Balestinians but the Arab-Muslim inability to tolerate statehood for Jews; a religious inability.
The problem with Israelis is their mistaken belief that this is a nationalist struggle between two nations, Jews and Ancient Ones instead of Islam’s endless war against Jews and Jewishness.
Israel has to finally start to protest and actually take action against foreign journalists who write of events on the “West Bank.” Israel hands out ID cards to foreign journalists here which helps them in their work, and in the future Israel must monitor their product to make sure they call Judea and Samaria Judea and Samaria, not the “West Bank,” whose invention was meant literally to cover up and even erase these Hebrew names, exactly the way the Emperor Hadrian in the second century came up with the names Palaestina and Aelia Capitolina to replace the two-century old Roman practice of calling the land Judea and the capital Jerusalem.
Israel’s tolerance of this vocabulary all these years has been a major contribution to the form antiJewism has taken since 1967.
What would Roger Waters do without resort to using the term “West Bank” to describe Judea and Samaria? Can you see him and other antiJews declaring as they do that the Jews must evacuate Judea? What a jerk he and they would look like then…
|…G-d bless Mike Huckabee, former Governor of Arkansas, former Baptist minister, currently a talk-show host on Fox who has visited Israel like 43 times, right after his weekend show, flew to Israel in the wake of the triple kidnapping and said what no Israeli politician ever says: The kidnapping is “nothing less than an act of anti-Semitic, rabid hatred.”
Bull’s eye. He gets it. He gets what Israelis, leastwise the secular elite here, are blind to. The homicidal hostility toward us has little to do with the alleged injustice we Zionists have visited upon the Ancient Ones and everything to do with Islam’s inveterate hatred of Jews. This former Baptist preacher knows religious fever when he sees it.
And not only the anti-Semitism of the Arabs here but their backers all over the globe….
|…Over the last week, the IDF arrested Abu Hassan Yousef, head of Hamas in Judea and Samaria, whose rebel son broke from his father’s house, sort of like Abraham, rejected Islam and converted to Christianity, saying, the problem with Islam is it conception of G-d, who is a cruel god.
Bull’s-eye. The great divide between paganism and Jewishness is over the nature of G-d. The pagans saw the forces beyond their power as cruel, capricious and chaotic.
|…Prime Minister Netanyahu reacted to Abbas’s surprising expression of “caring about the lives of human beings” – not Israelis, not Jews – by, as usual, demanding action to match the words, such as cancelling his pact with Hamas.
By contrast, the Palestinian Nationalist here who moon-lights as Israel’s Ministress of Post-Zionist Justice Tsipora Livni said Abbas’s words were “very important in our international struggle to get legitimacy for our actions.”
This too is so typical, in this case of Tsipi Livni’s slice of Israeli society, the Enlightened post-Jews. For them, what is most important, just as Livni says, is “getting international legitimacy for our actions.”
In other words, winning the approval of the goyim, especially in the West. We must be sprinkled with the holy water of their notion of legitimacy. Not our notion; not HaShem’s notion. For Livni and her ilk, legitimacy is rooted in what the goyim think of us. We have to appeal to their sense of justice in order to be secure in what we do…
|…Well, the Israeli today was right to survey the reactions of the world community to the triple kidnapping, and they were consistent with their spiritual distortions.
Today Baroness Catherine of Ashton, after four days of maintaining radio silence, finally came out with a statement in the name of Esavian EU countries condemning the kidnapping. She and her colleagues in Brussels should be ashamed of themselves for this. As Herb Keinon reported today in JPost, this is the same EU that applauded the marriage of Fatah and Hamas.
Indeed, just yesterday, instead of condemning the triple kidnapping, the EU’s man in Jerusalem, summoned to the Foreign Ministry, Lars Faaborg-Andersen, said that because of the weekend, the EU had been delayed in issuing such a statement, to which Rafi Shutz, director-general of relations with Western Europe who had called him in, reminded him that the EU had issued a statement regardless of the weekend about its meeting of foreign ministers with Arab foreign ministers during the week in Greece. In other words, “Spare me the taurine excreta.”
|…It has long been a puzzlement that Israel and the U.S., bastions of free speech, in their own eyes at least, allowed for the creation of a Soviet-style government in the manner of the Palestinian Authority media.
Remember the old Soviet Union, with its Izvestia and Pravda, one the government news service, the other the Communist Party’s daily newspaper called the Truth.
Imagine if Obama decreed martial law, which I believe he has the power to do in the Constitution, suspended habeas corpus as the great President Abraham Lincoln did during the Civil War, and declared that all news media outlets be shut down and the only one allowed to write the news would be a newspaper produced by his party called The Truth. Pravda.
Imagine an America like that and what classical Americans would think about that.
And now be aware that this is what the Oslo Peace Processors came up with. The PLO, the greatest spreader of terrorist murder and mayhem, was whitewashed and re-named the Palestinian Authority and controls Palestinian television, news and radio programs, and has its own daily newspaper.
Among other things, this is one of insanities of the Oslo Delirium…
|…How long will it take for Israelis like Peres, like Lapid, Livni, the mainstream leftist media, to see that our neighbors, the Arabs, are as insane in their minds about Jews as Europeans ever were; as Germans and lots of their helpers in the countries they overran last century. These Arabs; these Muslims see us as the embodiment of evil; of being agents of the devil, the shaitan, this typical, lisping mispronunciation of a Hebrew in Arabic, the satan. We all know how the Iranians originated the language of the US as the Big Satan and Israel as the Little Satan, and I submit these are not exercises in creative propaganda. They really see us as the most evil people in the world.
And this is why they deny the Holocaust. The Jew is not a figure of pity to whom an injustice has been done who deserves pity and expressions of regret and compensation for the evil done to him.
Oh no. The Holocaust endows the Jews with a stick with which to beat the world into granting them the right to steal Balestine. And this is why the Arabs invented Nakba Day in the 1990s to combat the memory of the Holocaust. If the Jews had been the victims of injustice instigated by the racist doctrines of antisemitism and Nazism, then the Ancient Ones were likewise the victims of the racist doctrine of Zionism…
|…And then came Ezer Weizman and the rules of the game changed. He is the one to turn it into a popularity contest, a competition because the people had rejected him as their leader in politics.
He corrupted the office was found believed guilty of financial corruption too. The statute of limitations prevented prosecution but the revelations impelled him to resign for having disgraced the office.
The came Moshe Katsav, a political hack known for his sexual predations who was removed from office and remains in prison at this very moment.
And then came Uncle Shimon who true to a lifetime of challenging the leaders of this democracy, this low-brow, soi-disant pseudo-intellectual was up to that as recently as last week; his fool of a man.
And now, that is, during recent weeks, we were witnessed to the shameless campaigning by one political party hack after another saying, “I want to be president! I want to be president! Vote for me!” with no awareness that one does not ask for such honors let alone campaign for them.
Then again, the original leaders of this Herzlian state were Leftists who set the culture and dreamed of a classless society, and what they got was a society with no class.
On the bright side, Ruby Rivlin, I think, will be a good president; leastwise in his victory speech today he seemed to understand the role when Peres, Weizman and Katsav never did. It should be above politics and policies. The president must foster not the ideas that divide the people but unite them…
|…Every day Israel is at war not only with the sons of Ishmael, that wild ass of a Hamitic man; Israel fights its perpetual war with its own Hellenists, those who identify with the goyim in the West.
For example, yesterday Israel’s Ministress of Post-Zionist, really post-Jewish Ministress of Justice Tsipora, which means bird, Tsipora the Birdbrain Livni, said Israel should cooperate with the new and improved Balestinian Unity government. This is what has been said in European countries, in Washington. Cooperation with the new unity government.
And I think Tsipora Livni, as a true princess of Hellenism, really has no views of her own. She looks to the West for guidance, and whatever they say, she will adopt as her opinion. Yesterday she said Israel should cooperate with the new government because the new ministers are not members of Hamas. In effect, Israel’s Ministress of Foreign Affairs was doing PR for the views of the Jew-killer Abbas who has made the same argument. Livni yesterday did not promote the views of Israel’s prime minister who appointed her. She was an advocate for the doctor of the philosophy of history was awarded the title doctor by the antisemitic Communists in the Soviet Union for this dissertation, his thesis that there was no mass murder of Jews in WWII and in any case those who were killed died at the hands of Nazis and the Zionists who worked with them. Tsipora Livni yesterday might as well have been the Foreign Ministress of the antisemitic PLO organization which never accepted the right of Jews to live free of their Qur’anically mandated oppressed and humiliated status…
|…I envy historians of the future who study this period in which arguably the greatest enemy spy-agent in history managed to become the head of the enemy’s people and do things consistently to weaken them.
Obama has stripped the Persian Gulf of US forces. He is shrinking US forces to levels below World War II, when there were less than half the Americans today and a world a third in size, population wise.
And now this evil man has liberated these five, proven, Muslim monsters to kill again.
And there is a connection between what he did by freeing them to get back this Edward Snowden-type traitor who sees himself acting out of love for his country by his betrayal, and the other decision this same week to stab Israel in the back.
When this decision to respect the new, so-called Balestinian government means is that of the $500 million the US sends every 12 months to the so-called Balestinian Authority, some will now be going to Hamas, a soul-sister Muslim cult of the Taliban, of al-Qaida, of Hezbollah, of the Muslim Brotherhood that he helped to install in Egypt, the Brotherhood being the original Islamist, crusader organization.
And thanks to Europe’s centuries of Jew-hatred, it is not surprising the Brits, the French, the EU joined the Obama bandwagon using the same word: “technocrats.”
No more Arabs. No more Muslims. No more Fatah. No more Hamas. These are kosher technocrats!
|…Tomorrow Israel may take actions to punish Abbas and his merry band of brother barbarians for linking arms with Hamas, and if so they in turn are threatening to sign up with 63 international organizations, treaties and conventions, and I say let them. This too is some of the rotten fruit of the Oslo madness: the fiction that there is a difference between Fatah and Hamas.
We are trapped like a fly in a sticky spider’s web. The same ridiculous game is being played with Hamas as was played with the PLO. In 1975, that uneducated boor Yitzhak Rabin said the PLO had to speak of recognition and peace and the end of terrorism in order to be recognized because that fool seemed not to consider that these conscienceless brutes might someday speak the magic words and sound sincere in their new-found recognition of Israel and renunciation of terrorism but be lying.
When I say it does not matter what these enemies of civilization say or do not say. They should never have never been talked to. They should all have been killed…
|…In the Holy Tongue, Biblical Hebrew, the word of a man, male, is basically the same as the one-word statement, “He remembered.” The only difference is a slight vowel change. In Modern Hebrew they are pronounced the same.
In other words the words here are telling us that a Jewish man, at least, is one who remembers. Next week, the Feast of Weeks commemorates the exact date in the 14th century before the Common Era, that’s a long time ago — the Hebrews as they were then known — escaped slavery in Egypt into the Sinai Desert and 50 days later, 7 x 7 plus 1 days later, they camped around a mountain where the Creator of the Universe gave them a book. Five books actually, and actually another 18 volumes worth of discussion called the Talmud, which discusses the Five Books. The Creator did not need 40 days and 40 nights to engrave the 10 Sayings in stone. The forty days were a 24/7 seminar he gave Moses to help him understand the Five Books.
And next week we will remember that moment in planetary history when G-d and Man met at the top of a mountain…
|…Worse, in politically correct fashion, the fashion of this generation’s Arab and Muslim suicide-massacre freaks, when escorted to the Israeli memorial to these victims in order to match his unscheduled homage to the security barrier, the Pope acted out the same body language but said, “I pray for all these victims, and for the victims of terrorism in the world.”
This is standard antiJew procedure in our time. Singling out Jewish suffering if only for a moment is a no-no. Focusing the mind just on the persecution of Jews, commonly as a result of some satanic fever in the brain, is not allowed. One may mention antisemitism and the suffering of the Jews due to it but then one must immediately bring similar hates and persecutions. You know, like on International Holocaust Day in January. Speakers commonly groan over the Holocaust of the Jews and the scourge of racism wherever it is found. “We remember the Holocaust and the persecution of Muslims at the hands of homicidal Islamophobes; of sexist chauvinism against women; against illegal aliens and sodomites, and in particular lesbian illegals. We cry over those who have suffered for being short, the victims of heightism, and bald guys for being laughed at…”
|…The big story in Israel today is the visit of the Pope of Rome, the church which baptized Adolf Hitler and so many of his henchmen. And here he was parroting the post-modernist wisdom about us Jews in Terra Sancta, the evil clichés about “both sides having to make sacrifices to create two states with internationally recognized borders, for the good of their people,” an evil cliché for the moral equivalence implied between us civilized Jews here, the victims of Arab aggression and our murderers, these sub-civilized, barbaric, savage people whose brains are as filled with antiJew lunacy as that of Adolf Hitler and friends; whose brains are packed with fantasies of invented Jewish crimes which justify their demands for Jewish property. They covet the wealth we have created here and have concocted a narrative to justify why it all belongs to them and why they have the right to murder us because we stole it from them. And here was the Pope of Rome having swallowed this narrative like a communion wafer…|
|…Yeah, the Muslims here seem to be trying once again to perpetrate a hoax to smear us Jews with their own penchant for cold-blooded murder.
My own conclusion about the Muhammad ad-Dura blood libel is this: while some say there may have been no killing of a boy by that name at all; it was all staged; I judge the behavior of the father and the son crouching and cringing in terror to have been no act by them. I believe they were really being shot at to scare them to death, only the shooters were of course not Israeli soldiers but Muslims in the Strip who either had a bone to pick with this man or he and his son were anonymous passersby picked out by the Muslims to be sacrificed for the cause. As Muslims identical to the 9-11 demons who slaughtered themselves and other Muslims on those planes or in the World Trade Towers at the time, those shooting at the father and son may have decided it was all for the cause of Allah against the infidels, al-Yahud…
|…Every time Dr. Martin Indyk PhD opens his mouth about Israel, you are treated to his identity crisis, his panicked discomfort with having been born into this hated and chronically persecuted people.
So the world acts ambivalently to the existence of the Jewish people and in our time our return after 18 centuries in exile. On the one hand there is a traditional hatred of Jews just for being Jews and now an additional layer for having returned since 1967 to Jerusalem and Hevron as masters; and on the other this unites them around about the only foreign policy issue in the world that breeds such unanimity. There is 100% agreement that Israel is not entitled to call Jerusalem its capital, and as for living in Judea and Samaria and visiting the graves of their ancestors, that too is an international no-no among the goyim.
Problem is, too many Israelis don’t see that, and that has several sources. Among those born and raised here, they attend school, K-12, in which everyone in the school is a Jew so they never witness a fist-fight on the playground ignited by a goy boy calling a Jewish boy a dirty Jew who then has to defend his honor…
|…Indyk blames Naftali Bennett and Uri Ariel as the culprits responsible for blowing up the peace talks with their building plans. This Indyk is a nasty piece of work, who will become, I predict, a textbook case in the future for the study of Jewish apostates, with the unique twist that in our time post-Holocaust, antiJews must dissemble. You know, like the J Street variety of Jewish antiJew. It is Thomas Friedman’s technique as well. You proclaim your love for Israel but wail because you love it so much you can’t stand Israel’s miserable oppression of the victims of Zionism. This variety of contemporary Jewish antiJew, like the Gentile antiJew, must cloak his antagonism in words of concern and love. This is like the Gentile antiJew today who denies he is an antisemite but just pro-Balestinian. Since the Holocaust, outright, frontal, in your face, honest Jew-hatred is found only among shameless skinheads and marginals with swastika tattoos. In the West that is.
In the Muslim universe, by contrast, society remains pretty much pre-War, pre-World War II in its attitudes toward Jews. There is no shame in spewing Nazi-like Jew-hatred animated by delusional, practically magical fantasies of Jewish evil.
Consider the video this weekend of Turkey’s anti-Jew turkey of a Muslim tyrant Recep Erdogan snarling at angry demonstrators and calling one “Israeli scum (semen).”
|…This is a land dispute and we have the winning case, not them. And no amount of making compromises will win us any points, because they are not interested in compromise and sharing the land, as all the stupid peace-makers like Martin Indyk think.
We live in an Alma Dishikra, a world of lies, when Israel pretends these people are “Palestinians” with national rights to statehood here, a thought that would have amazed Zionism’s founding fathers across the board. If any of them had believed this desolate landscape belonged to a settled nation with its own government and history and culture and language, they never would have imagined their project of restoring this land to fertility and habitability. The idea that there was a “Palestinian” nation in residence with rights to statehood would have flabbergasted every one of them, secular, religious, left or right.
I remember this country a half-country ago and can imagine what it looked like in the 19th and early 20th centuries, assisted in my thoughts by the paintings and photographs taken at the time.
Yesterday’s destruction of Jewish homes by the government of the Jewish state is yet another shameful episode like Gush Katif and Amona…
|…Today the ADL reported that in a survey in 100 countries, over half of the people never heard of the Holocaust; and like a quarter of these countries were “deeply antisemitic.”
And one is not surprised, though I suppose too many Israelis are. The creation of this terrific little state has been functionally a miracle. But contrary to the hopes of the secularist pioneers, its birth has not dispatched antiJew thinking and feeling to their eternal rest.
And as noted at the beginning of this webcast, as the Arab attitude toward the creation and existence of a Jewish state today differs not at all from what it was in late 1947, so here we have evidence that old-fashioned, delusional antiJew fantasies are alive and well in too many human brains.
Last week, PMW reported that on a weekly Hamas TV program for kids, a little girl was asked what she wants to be when she grows up and she said a policewoman so she can shoot all the Jews.”
The interviewer asks her, “All of them?”
“Yes,” she said.
And I say, these are our neighbors, and the ones identified as non-Hamas are no different than Hamas in their views of Jews. And that is because this is their religion, whose priests in their pulpits spew classical, fantastical Jew-hatred, right out of the Middle Ages, really the Dark Ages, as their politicians preach the mythical history of the Balestinians who have lived here from time immemorial, such peace negotiators as Saeb Erekat, who says the Jews never had temples on the Temple Mount.
Really now: When are Israelis going to splash some cold water on their faces and face the reality of just who these Arabs are?
|…Speaking before of the classical, age-old, really age-less hatred of Jews and fantasies of our imagined evil deeds, the other top story here today was the hysterical Newsweek piece yesterday reporting on Israel’s alleged spying on America which allegedly began even before there was an Israel. How’s that for the magical powers of Jews? Israelis spying on America before there was an Israel.
The Newsweek piece said, “Zionists were dispatching spies to America before there was even an Israel, to gather money and materials for the cause and later the fledgling state.”
This sentence makes no sense. It starts with the “dispatching of Zionist spies to America,” who “gather money and materials for the cause.” But that’s not spying. Spying on what? Yes, they were fund-raising and buying supplies for their self-defense which they knew would be needed. How is that spying on America, let alone spying with intent to harm America?
It sounds as if this is not the first time determined antiJews working for CIA or the State Department Defense Department who mean Jews ill. And true to antiJew form, they cast accusations of malevolence…
|…And then there is another variety of Jewish anti-Jew behavior which we saw yesterday when Peres’s protégée, Ministress of Justice, Peace Maker extraordinaire Tsipora Livni, chaired an emergency meeting at her ministry joined by Public Security Minister, basically chief of the national police, Yitzhak Aharonovitch on her left side and on her right Attorney-General Yehuda Weinstein. The emergency meeting was called and dutifully covered by the media to ask the Cabinet to declare these price-tag attacks “terrorism,” and all yours truly could do was sigh in disgust, for two reasons. It is a perversion of language to call these graffiti raids terrorism when no one is terrorized by them, shocked into a sudden great fear. That’s terror. This is not terror. It results in the next morning some Arabs sneering in anger but no one is terrorized, terrified or frightened.
What this crusade by these Leftist fools is fueled by is their need to advertise to the world, as Livni has already said, that these vandals do not represent her Israel; they don’t belong to her nation.
She and the others likewise foolishly call these antics “hate crimes” when they cannot be confused with what “hate crimes” usually connotes. There is nothing wrong with Jews hating Arabs. It is normal, it is justified, it can be beneficial…
|Program Link: Inside the talks’ failure: US officials open up|
…Without Islam, for the Arabs as a nation, comparing themselves to the nations of Europe and the West is a depressing exercise. I’ve traveled in a third of the Arab states and nowhere is there a New York, Paris, London, Prague, Tokyo, Chicago, Kyoto, Kobe, Toronto, Montreal, cities which is where man reaches the heights of his capabilities; where he builds research hospitals and libraries and universities, museums and think-tanks.
Versus Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Yemen, Syria, Iraq, etc. Jordan. None of these countries has even one city to compare to what cities in the West, as a concept, associates to.
Where is the R & D in Araby? They produce nothing; innovate nothing. Look at Japan, South Korea with their automobile plants. Look at burgeoning China.
Islam is everything to these people and it simply cannot accommodate Israel in its midst…
|…Unfortunately the Israeli government’s official response to these statements misses the mark as usual. Yes, an anonymous official told JPost these remarks expose the myth that somehow Hamas has changed or moderated its positions.”
But then the spokesman concluded, “Hamas remains an extremist, jihadist organization committed to the destruction of Israel.”
No. It is not an extremist organization. It won the election against Fatah in 2006, the last time these sub-civilized barbarians held an election. Hamas does not represent the extreme or margins of the Arabs here; the election results show exactly the opposite. Hamas speaks for the majority. That is not extremist but centrist.
People in the West have got to get over using categories of perception unsuited for this part of the planet. In Araby the extremists, the ones out on the fringe of society, are the liberal democrats (liberal democrat in the sense of classical Western democracy, not the corrupt liberalism we know today).
For sure there are individuals in Araby who understand the virtues of liberal democracy, of freedom of speech, freedom of religion and conscience, and above all the need respect people who disagree with you.
But these are so few and far between, they are politically marginal, on the extreme edges of a culture when the Arab street is ruled by the mob and the mob waves the banner of holy war.
Hamas is no extremist organization. In fact, its rival, shares its philosophy, differing only in tactics…
|…I’ll say. The more I observe these Muslims, the more I focus on the perverse relations in their culture between the sexes and within the sexes. Polygamy is an ancient system and related somehow — I am not sure of yet — to polytheism, to the pagan vision of life. In any case, it leads to fratricidal competition between the many sons of a potentate, and the Muslim attitude toward women generates somehow a society of men lacking in compassion, mercy. How divinely brilliant of Jewishness that the Holy Tongue, Hebrew, connects the word for womb, rekhem, to the word for mercy, rakhmanoot.
And I suspect there is connection between the boundless cruelty and sadism these Arabs and Muslims are capable of and their perverse relationship to women…
